I like the KalonJ idea of having a 'capture the flag' tagorama game

'Capture the Tag' if you will

Edit: Dang, Caycek5, me and you had the same comment at the same exact moment

You used to affix this to at least half your posts, so I always think "Land" when I see someone use it.

Thus the ANY of the tags could be any where in the state and those that lose thier local area's tag will be shamed forever.
I've thought about making the Midlands and Lowcountry games statewide games (well, the Lowcountry one, anyway, since not many people are playing it).

There are folks -- me included -- who like tag games for the individual challenge. I'm not interested in a tag game that pits region against region. In talking with some other people who used to tag, they aren't, either.

I see the regional tag games as something to do when you don't have time to go after a state tag that is farther away right now than you have time to go after. The health of the Midlands and Upstate games shows that people want to tag. I invite all of you to ask yourselves, "What have I done to improve the tag game and bring new players in -- and not push other players away?"

Disclosure time: My enthusiasm for the tag games waxes and wanes. It has been waning more and more lately. The drama and BS get tiresome. From conversations that I've had, I'm not the only one who feels this way.

YMMV.

Ride safely,
Chris

Why not (change the lowcounty tag to) a capture the tag???


Edited after reading Lands comments. He does have some valid points. And what is all this about drama and bull hockey??

I think Land makes a good point of the function of the regional tag games-

really and truly if you want to- you can just think of the SC tag game as capture-a-tag (if you want that is )

I love Riding - thats why I play Tag-O-Rama

It's a good way to meet up with others that ride

we can leave all that drama stuff for the cagers

two wheels = care free

whats most funny is you knew it was YOU

I don't quite understand Kalonji's proposed game....

keep the same names of the games? but yet, make them state wide?
keep others from takin YOUR tag? seems this would keep the game close to home. in other words, you would want to drop it close to someone else, to ensure a grab, before an "outsider" could grab it? I'm not catching the jist of it i guess.

region vs region is not really what has happened, IMO.......
other than the upstate tag... that was more of a punishment IMO...
it's not like the midlands are trying to gather more tags than the upstate...

I do feel if there was some competition, it would bolster more interest...
the problem is, there are so few upstaters that are willing to ride out of their region, if we played capture the tag, all you would have to do is take theirs and move it past I-20 and I-77 and it would sit till went to get it. IMO of course...



this is what needs to happen IMO......
add the silly counties requested to the midland games.....leave everything else about it alone....

if there is want/desire to play some other sort of game, make new game...
make 4 new games if ya want.... but leave alone what is being played, and how it is being played, it will die if no one wants to play it..... Kalonji should have no influence on the midland or upstate games.... just cos he thinks there should only be one game. however, if he and his buddies from the lowcountry want to kill their lowcountry game....all they have to do is not play...... of course others outside their region, including me should have no influence on other games outside their region.
i do agree that the regional games give you something to chase while you don't have time to reach for the state game.

post a new game, see how it flies....

I am easing down main street and see this loaded down, black KLR. I whip into a spot right next to it and dismount my trusty VFR, when lo-and-behold, there's this dude sitting there pouring himself a coffee out of a thermos and burning down a Marlboro Light. It was at an old Police Station and I thought it would make a great story and even better TAG! So, Here's to You PeeDeeRider! He's down ole' Mehico way right now. Poor fella'.

Awesome! Thanks Wes. I am glad to see one of my favorite little pit-stops helped to improve the game.



Proposed tag: Maybe we could include Quanta Roo in the Midlands???

Does anyone have a 200 peso bill? I need another bottle of SPF 50.

We could use the congressional districts; that would make for an interesting set of tag games:
